It was our good friend Pete Abraham who asked the question over at the Extra Bases blog.
As a strictly hypothetical — acknowledging the situation will never actually happen — would Red Sox fans be OK with Derek Jeter coming to Boston?
The answer was an overwhelming, yes.
As Pete wrote, it’s not a legitimate scenario, and he certainly wasn’t suggesting it might happen, but it’s interesting to see that most Boston fans would welcome the Yankees captain should he actually become a viable option.
Remember, Yankees fans not only welcomed Johnny Damon, they came to embrace him and even miss him when he was gone.
